    Two health centers in Kodiak and more than two dozen others in Alaska will receive federal funding to hire additional doctors and expand primary care services.
    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the $5.3 million in funding through the federal health care law will help the centers reach more than 7,700 new patients.
    The Kodiak Area Native Association will receive $187,000, while the Kodiak Island Health Care Foundation is in line for $196,142.
    The Department of Health estimates the funding will allow for longer hours and expanded services, including dental, vision or mental and behavioral health services. It also will allow for the hiring of 40 additional staff members across the state.

    At Thursday night’s Kodiak City Council meeting, two members and the mayor responded to some harsh criticism when the anti-Defense Authorization Act resolution failed last month on a tie-breaking vote by Mayor Pat Branson.
    Councilman Gabriel Saravia said he received what he described as a threatening communication from a local supporter of PANDAA, the “People Against the National Defense Authorization Act,” trying to coerce him to change his vote.
    “I received an e-mail from the PANDAA group asking to make a deal with me to publicly announce I was wrong in not voting for the resolution. I then yes with the council’s next vote on the resolution, and if I do this they will do everything in their power to never have another public position in this town ever,” Saravia said. “This e-mail was threatening, and I would like this group to know the resolution was voted on and I voted what I see was right. And the resolution cannot come back for another year. I would like them and the public to know I do not make deals. I vote, and I will continue to vote what I think is right for the citizens of Kodiak.”
    The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 contains language members of PANDAA interpret as allowing the federal government to detain or kill American citizens without due process. Others disagree, saying the language in the Act only applies to terrorists. Dan Johnson, founder of the People Against the NDAA, told KMXT in May that the term terrorist is “now being applied to anyone the government considers a threat.”
    A resolution to denounce the Act came before the Kodiak City Council last month, but tied on a three-three vote, which the mayor had to break, voting no. Councilmen Randy Bishop, Rich Walker and Terry Haines all voted in favor of the denouncement.

    Alaska Airlines began flying smaller, turboprop planes between Anchorage and Fairbanks earlier this year. They also flew summer routes between Anchorage and Kodiak.  
    Alaska Vice President Marilyn Romano says they’re cheaper to operate.
    “It’s a cost savings because you’re not using a jet that’s designed for a longer flight, and running it back and forth on a very short segment. And so by doing that, then you take it to the next level. Our ultimate goal was to bring down our costs. Then we could, at the same time, look at bringing down fares.”
    Romano says some cheaper fares went into place last spring and more are coming. She says they’re separate from steep discounts on summer Seattle-Juneau flights that came after Delta Air Lines began competing on that route.

Sullivan Now On for Kodiak Fisheries Debate PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 12 September 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT
    Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, Dan Sullivan has changed his mind about coming to Kodiak to participate in the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce fisheries debate. That word from his campaign staff this morning.
    Spokesman Mike Anderson said his candidate will attend and is looking forward to the debate, scheduled for October 1st. He said that Sullivan recognizes the importance of Alaska's fisheries, and that the campaign has rescheduled a swing through Southwest Alaska to ensure that he could make the Kodiak debate.
    Anderson said that Sullivan “looks forward to a healthy exchange of ideas with Mark Begich on the future of Alaska's fisheries, and is excited to attend the debate in Kodiak.”
    Since Tuesday when it was announced he was skipping the fisheries debate, Sullivan had come under almost continuous attack from his opponent, incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Begich, who described the Kodiak event as a tradition among Alaska statewide candidates.
    Sullivan has been unavailable for comment this week. Today, Anderson said, he is in Marine Corps Reserve training and unavailable to speak to the change of heart.
    The two-hour debate will feature candidates for the U.S. Senate in the first hour, and candidates for the U.S. House in the second. Incumbent Republican Representative Don Young and Democratic challenger Forrest Dunbar have both confirmed that they will attend. It will be broadcast on KMXT, and made available statewide through the Alaska Public Radio Network.
